Wesley Dodds is the Sandman by Vashtastic Wesley Dodds is the Sandman by Vashtastic
Okay I had this image stuck in my head for months and I was so into drawing it until I realized that I had seen this somewhere... I can't remember where... promo art? an actual cover? So I drew it to get it out of my head.
For more info: [link]) Check out Sandman Mystery Theater, very noir, very cool.

Originally it was all green tones, think I should change it back?

Thanks! I think you're the first person I've talked to that's familiar with the series.

You're welcome! I haven't read a lot of them because I can't find very many of the Sandman Mystery Theater (or anything Sandman). But I do like the series.

i think the blue and green communicate basically the same mood (with the exclusion of limey electric greens which would "hoke" this up a little i think). i'm just more partial to the blue.

it does look very epic. simple enough though that i wouldn't sweat any outside inspirations.

this is really great.

No, keep it blue. It makes it look more mysterious and noir that way. If it were green it would feel more... poisonous, I think. And unreal. The way it is now makes it look like he's actually looking in through the window, but the green... I don't know, I'd have to see it to be sure, but I definitely like the blue.

lol the reason it was green was because that's what his superhero costume is. i wanted to make it look more like noxious gas actually, but thank you, i really do like it blue myself.
